What software does the preload come with? What does Kubuntu run "out  
of the box" and without network access? I would be surprised if  
Kubuntu off disk includes a decent range of fonts *and* OpenOffice in  
that 650MB - OpenOffice itself is what... 250MB installed?

Of course, remove all the crapware from the IBM preload and make a  
system restore set with the crapware removed and you'll find it's a  
different story.

My Mac OS X /Applications directory is 7GB, mostly because the  
applications are fairly graphics-intensive (button icons, pictures  
for everything).
